“The KCC PTA program has done an amazing job at preparing me for my career, before I left the program, I had already accepted a job offer before I graduated. Something that I think students should know is that this college definitely has a lot of community support and if you find your place here, you'll feel like you're surrounded by family.”

“I found KCC to be an excellent choice for my educational journey. KCC's Respiratory Therapist program stands out because it allows you to enter the medical field with a decent income and room for growth, requiring only an AA degree. In just two years, you can embark on a fulfilling career. My advice to anyone considering KCC or the Respiratory Therapist program is that it's not only cost-effective but also offers a genuine college experience. It's an excellent starting point if you plan to pursue a bachelor's degree.”
